Barbecue Potato Salad w/ Feiny's Barbecue Rub

So the other night the hubs was talking about creating a Barbecue Potato Salad using one of Fein Tasting Foods rubs ... namely the Original Barbecue Rub.  He set out on his mission to develop this potato salad, and with a little help from me (and just a few suggestions), I think he did it!  Creamy, tasty, just a bit of a bite, yummy!  Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

6 medium size red potatoes, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 small onion, diced
approx. 1/2 cup mayonnaise
approx. 1/2 cup sour cream
4 tsp. or to taste Fein Tasting Foods Original Barbecue Rub
2 tsp. white wine vinegar
1.5 tsp. course-ground black pepper
Salt to taste
6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a large saucepan, add potatoes to salted water and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and cook until potatoes are just al dente, and not mushy.  Immediately drain and rinse with cold water.  Set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, barbecue rub, white wine vinegar and course-ground black pepper, stirring to thoroughly combine.  Add salt to taste. Toss in the diced celery, onion and potatoes and mix until well combined.  Cover and place in the refrigerator to chill for several hours before serving.  Top with crumbled bacon just before serving, or let each person add their own.

Please note - Chef Feiny is a foodie friend who graciously sent me samples of his rubs. He and I have no financial arrangement ... I just enjoy using them, and, yes, they are that good!
